What is it about our dog’s breath? One day they have the cutest, sweetest puppy breath and the next day they’re full-grown with a case of, well, dog breath.
We all want to cuddle up close with our dogs and enjoy the experience, but unfortunately, a case of gnarly dog breath can get in the way.
If this is the case with your dog, don’t worry – there are still lots of things you can do, like regular teeth brushing or going to the vet for a cleaning.
Or, here’s an easy and fun idea: make your pup minty fresh dog treats that taste great and spruce up the smell of their breath.
